Cheap Trick, Joan Jett, Heart @ BB&T Pavilion

Camden, NJ—When the legendary band Cheap Trick took the stage on the last day of July, it was hot. Fans were still imbibing and they didn’t have a full house to play for. By the time they played their second song, “California Man,” the crowd started to fill in and …

Heart @ F.M. Kirby Center For The Performing Arts

WILKES-BARRE, PA—From the show’s opener to the encore’s last crowd pleaser, Heart’s May 19 performance at Wilkes Barre’s art deco gem, The F.M. Kirby Center For The Performing Arts, was exceptional and included a version of “Alone” so intimate and perfect that made everything I’ve ever accomplished worthless. Yeah, I …

Heart @ New Jersey Performing Arts Center

NEWARK, NJ – When Heart opened its April 6 show with “Barracuda,” a song that frontwomen Ann and Nancy Wilson wrote in 1977 as an angry response to sexism in the music industry, it was a reminder that not a lot has changed for women since then. But if Ann …

Heart @ Bethel Woods Center For The Arts

BETHEL, NY—Considering my close proximity to Bethel, NY and my love for music, it’s puzzling that I haven’t driven there before now. Maybe it’s because, when it comes to concerts, I’d rather watch one in a smoky bar rather than on an open farm field at the sticky, humid peak …

An Interview with Ann Wilson from Heart: You Know You Love It

Heart: Fanatic

Classic rock mavens Heart are back with their 14th album to date, Fanatic. The veteran band starts off strong with distorted guitars and relatively mellow drums that complement the strings.

Rant ‘N’ Roll: Santana & Heart

Shape Shifter (Starfaith Records) is the 36th album in 44 years for guitar hero Carlos Santana…and it’s the album I’ve been waiting for. He seemed to be coasting on 2010’s Guitar Heaven where he did up some played-out rock chestnuts by Led Zep, Cream, Ringo, Doors and Purple. And that …

Interview with Alice In Chains: The Return

The prospect of an Alice In Chains reunion might have sounded questionable, given vocalist/frontman Layne Staley’s accidental death from a drug overdose four years ago, but last Feb., when AIC took the stage with a rotating host of singers (including but not limited to Maynard James Keenan of Tool, Ann …
